Candidate Experience Awards Recognizes Organizations That Deliver Exceptional Candidate Experience

SAN FRANCISCOJuly 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Talent Board, a non-profit organization focused on the elevation and promotion of a quality candidate experience, today announced that Phenom People, the global leader in Talent Experience Management (TXM), has again returned as a Global Underwriter for this year’s 2019 Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards global benchmark research program, as well as joining the Talent Board underwriter sponsor advisory board.

“We’re honored to be back again as a Global Underwriter,” said Ed Newman, co-founder of Talent Board and chief evangelist of Phenom People. “Our continuous support and deep commitment to Talent Board’s global benchmarking efforts are a top priority and align with our customer mission of improving the talent experience. Phenom People has supported the program from the beginning, and we continue to demonstrate our passion and dedication, and providing program guidance.”

The annual Talent Board recruiting and candidate experience benchmarking and awards program offer employers in North AmericaEurope, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC); and now for the first time Latin America, a risk-free and confidential opportunity to learn how their organization’s candidate experience practices compare to those of their peers and obtain feedback from their candidates, while gaining insight into the latest tools and strategies for optimizing the recruiting process.

The largest study of its kind, the Talent Board benchmark research program has evaluated responses from hundreds of global employers each year and nearly 1 million job seekers since 2011. To qualify, each company has to commit to a statistically significant candidate response, and the proportion of respondents not hired also had to exceed a set standard. Registration for the 2019 CandE program is now open.

“I’ve loved watching the evolution of Phenom People. Their Phenom Talent Experience Management platform today helps employers serve candidates and employees alike, as well as recruiters and hiring managers,” Kevin Grossman, Talent Board president and board member. “But always a mainstay of their core mission has been to improve the recruiting experience for millions of candidates applying at companies big and small across industries. In the end, candidates just want a fair and seamless experience when they apply for a job, and Phenom People has long supported our benchmark research that shines a light on what’s working and what’s not in the recruiting process and the candidate journey. We’re thrilled to have their continued support this year.”
